UPDATE: Mischa Barton

In early March of 2010, Your Mama revealed that down on her professional luck ack-tress/model/troubled starlet about town Mischa Barton (The OC, The Sixth Sense) listed the Beverly Hills, CA house she shares–or shared, we don't know–with her parents and equally troubled sister Whatsername. Our sources snitched–and we were able to confirm–that the property was being shopped off-market for $8,395,000.

Conventional real estate wisdom say that if a house does not sell at $8,395,000, it should probably undergo a price chop and not a price increase as was done with Miss Barton's Mediterranean manse this week when it was officially listed–with a different real estate agent, dontcha know–with a puzzlingly higher asking price of $8,695,000. It's also been put out for lease at $30,000 per month.

Miss Barton and her wealthy parents purchased the 7,607 square foot residence in July of 2005 for $6,400,000 according to property records and previous reports. The gated, three story mansion is located in the same gated enclave as filthy rich HSN-co-founder Bud Paxton and actor John Stamos who Your Mama thinks is a fine specimen of manhood despite his rather bizarre belly button situation.

Listing information indicates that in addition to the 8 bedrooms and 10 poopers, the Barton above has 6 fireplaces, a colossal eat-in kitchen with walk-in pantry, a library, fitness facilities, staff quarters, and guest quarters with separate entrances, private patios, and "hotel style amenities," whatever that is. There are, according to listing information, a seemingly unnecessary cacophony of of flooring materials including carpet, hardwood, marble, stone and tile. The hillside property has views of canyons and Catalina Island, a heated swimming pool and spa, expansive terraces, and meandering pathways that wind along the lower part of the property.

Miss Barton, who seems to have a penchant for bad boy boyfriends and fast living, has in the past expressed interest in living in New York or London but Your Mama hasn't an iota of where she currently resides or what her future real estate plans may be.

I honestly doubt that she or her family NEEDS to sell the home. They have enough money to carry it and are holding out for their number. Not a serious seller.

Raising the price is indeed quizzical, but who knows what goes through the addled minds of the Bartons?

She's always stated that she detests LA. London & NYC are 'home' for her & her family so I wouldn't be surprised if they left California. Her parents still own their Reade St loft in the city - right?
